Inky dark, indigo purple in color, like an underground mystical cavern, with powerful, brooding aromas of warm blackberry cobbler, blueberry compote and fresh currants, with pencil lead, eucalyptus and dried tobacco leaf. Caramel notes, vanilla bean and hints of sandalwood and toffee round out the voluptuous and complex nose. On the palate, bold, assertive and generous in its offerings of rich and ripe fruit flavors. Bursting with juicy plum, tangy boysenberry and succulent blueberry, complemented by crushed stone, dried sage, cassis and a hint of black truffle. Seamlessly integrated showcasing an exquisite balance of fruit, structure and a graceful texture. The near endless finish accentuates the solid blackberry core, harmony of fruit and foundation and fine vanilla crème highlights. A unique wine of character and finesse, and excellent ageing potential.
